We laid off an employee. And the employee filed unemployment

This answer was rated:

We laid off an employee. And the employee filed unemployment benefit. What do we need to pay for it? We received an notice from Arizona Dept of Economic Security Unemployment Insurance Program. There is an item potential charges: $3340. What is it?
The way unemployment works is that you pay unemployment taxes based on each employee you have working for you. The accounting notice is not a bill, it is notice to you of the charges against your unemployment account, which is based on what the employee is drawing in benefits. Your unemployment taxes that you have been paying on the employees is where this money comes from and it is not a bill you have to pay, they are just telling you the person applied for unemployment, you have the right to challenge their benefits and this is the quarterly amount potential that will come from your unemployment account of what you have been paying in taxes.

So $3340 will be the quarterly charge to our unemployment account. how many quarters will this charge continue? total 4 quarters or permanently?

Depends on whether the employee qualifies for 13 or 26 weeks, they should not likely qualify for more than that.

thank you. do you have document review service? if you have, I may ask another question. how much the charge? we will sign a trademark settlement agreement (4-5 pages). Before we sign it, we would like some 3rd party to review to see if there is potential issue.

It is tough for us to review documents unless you can upload them to this forum as we cannot communicate via email or fax to receive documents. As far as the cost, this is up to the customer as experts are not allowed to suggest prices to customers by the terms of this service. However, we do and can review documents under these terms as long as you also tell us your specific concerns as well.
